All of the other things I have from Steeplechase are LPs. The sound was not as good as the vinyl, but it was still quite good for a CD.

Good recordings still shine through.

Lyn Stanley: London Calling, A Toast to Julie London



AT Music SACD Hybrid

I loved Lyn Stanley's first three albums, but was rather disappointed with the performances on The Moonlight Sessions. But I am happy to say that this album returns to the quality I enjoyed on the early releases.

Jacintha: Here's to Ben



Groove Note SACD Hybrid

I already have this on XRCD so when I get a chance I am looking forward to comparing the XRCD to the Redbook layer of this disc as well as DSD on the SACD layer.

Tmazz,
do you need special equipment or software to play XRCD (JVC) ?
Is that something new that will disappear like the audio cassette, VHS,Beta max, etc....

Nope. XRCDs are standard Redbook discs. The XRCD line is the result of JVC doing everything it can at each step of the mastering and manufacturing process to insure the best sound possible. See the link below for an article on the XRCD process that was published in TAS in 2010.
